Eucerin Sun Gel-Creme Oil Control Dry Touch Face SPF50+

Did not agree to my skin

Decided to try this new product upon recommendation of the Eucerin consultant at a clicks store. It claims to be suitable for sensitive and acne prone skin and is dry touch to contorl oil. However after i started using this product i have been getting terrible breakouts with huge zits on my face!! My skin is sensitive but not overly so. Really was not impressed with the product at all. The design of the product including packaging and the dispenser pump are all of great quality which constitutes the R200 price tag. Will not repurchase though.

 

Yardley Eyeshadow

Hated it

This product is such an absolute waste of time/money. I loved the shades and the packaging, however the eyeshadow product itself does not even last an hour on my eyes, despite its stayfast claim. If I use the shadows I have to carry it along and touch up every hour or so. Pathetic. would never repurchase

Pure 3-in-1 Wash + Scrub + Mask

Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Wash + Scrub + Mask

I love this product, it is packaged simply and is a no fuss no mess squeeze tube.It has a refreshing scent. A little of the product goes a long way and i have used it as a wash, scrub and a mask. I am very pleased with the exfoliating effect when using it as a scrub/wash however it seems to be too harsh for my skin and always breaks me out – having the oppostie effect of what it claims to do. Would not repurchase.

 

Glimmerstick

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Absolutely love this product, cannot express it in words!! It goes on like velvet and stays on like a charm! The colour range is stunning and you will always find one to go with any outfit be it day/night. The liner is also waterproof and does not smudge even in humid weather. The packaging is beautiful and there is no scent. A definite must have for any glamour girl!!

Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation SPF 15

CC Cream – did not deliver as promised

After reading many reviews about the new Avon CC cream and it 50SPF I decided to try one. I purchased the “soft Honey” shade which was a tad light for my skin tone. The texture of this cc cream is very silky and light and the coverage is very minimal unlike what I expected!! It has a very strong smell which is very summery and a bit like cucumber. The SPF 50 is great for summer, however every time I use this it breaks me out like crazy. Would not repurchase!!

Avène Thermal Water Spray

Refreshingly different

Having heard a lot in beauty news regarding thermal water sprays I was super excited to receive this product to review. It is beautifully and simplistically packaged and feels good to hold in the hand. The spray itself is super light and SO refreshing to the skin it is like walking into a heavenly waterfall!! I have used it before and after putting on makeup, after a workout / hot shower / hot & humid weather and it felt simply divine on the skin. By just spraying a little onto my face I felt it revive and wake up all my senses and left my whole body feeling more energized and awake. I’ve tried it to set my makeup as soon on the web, however I felt that this didn’t work well in that regard and it watered down my makeup instead of giving that dewy/glowy look I expected. All in all I felt this an amazing product to use and I would definitely add this to my “must-haves” list.
